As Elle Woods, Miss Piggy, and Julia Roberts’ character in Steel Magnolias all knew, pink is a signature color, best worn in large quantities with loads of confidence.

They all would have plotzed for the 2019 Oscars red carpet fashion, where shades of fuchsia, flamingo, bubble gum, and bougainvillea abounded on dame Helen Mirren and red carpet queens such as Angela Bassett, Maya Rudolph, and Gemma Chan. And lest you believe this look is just for the ladies, please see Jason Momoa, who matched his blush velvet Karl Lagerfeld tuxedo to his wife Lisa Bonet’s dress—not to mention the scrunchie on his wrist.
